Professional Liability

celebrated for the calibre of our many clued-up and committed juniors

Legal 500

Temple Garden Chambers undertakes a broad range of professional liability claims, including medical negligence, acting for both claimants and defendant insurers.

Our work incorporates a wide variety of disputes, including claims involving accountants, insurance brokers, medical professionals, solicitors and surveyors. The nature of this work varies from simple claims for and against solicitors in respect of missed limitation or procedural deadlines to complex claims involving reviews of lengthy litigation which include failures to properly advise the clients. A clinical negligence claim might involve the failure of a medical practitioner to correct diagnose a condition such as cancer or to remove the cancer at mammectomy. We deal with claims against surveyors for valuing land too high or too low and against insurance brokers for failing to provide a client with the correct type of insurance.

Members of Chambers advise in these areas, prepare statements of case and conduct claims on behalf of clients in the High Court and County Court.
